how to run Fedora 8 installed at external usb hdd inside the windows


Hi,

I installed Fedora8 in an extern usb hdd. pc has windows installed.
During boot I select the "boot from external usb device" option.
Fedora boots and works succesfully.

here is the question.
I want to access this Fedora inside the windows. Virtual machines can not be forces to use a real drive instead of a virtual hdd file, I think. So they do not offer a solution ( do they ? )

So I am looking for a program which can recognize my Fedore on usb and boot and emulate it in side the windows.

thanks for any comments.

I know VMware can boot OS installations on physical disks.

The virtual machine I checked seems doesn't support this feature.
But I will check it with VMware.

unSpawn, thanks for the info!
